Re: [APD] Open Top Aquariums
My open top 75 loses about 5 gallons in a week. My
house I can assure you is not "tropical sogginess".
While it is moister this winter in my house, I still
put water in front of a few vents to help out. Mind
you, I put up plastic on my windows and keep my house
@ 62 at night. Still no sogginess.
